The last place you might expect to find a commission aiming to control church services is Iowa. California, sure. But not Iowa. Even so, the Iowa Civil Rights Commission is interpreting a state Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI) law to censor church sermons on Christian sexual ethics when services are open to the public (…which apparently isn’t every Sunday?) and force churches to open its restroom facilities to members of the opposite sex. According to Iowa’s unelected commission and… Read more

Later this week, July 7-9, International Christian Concern (ICC) will host The Bridge, “The Annual Conference on the Persecuted Church.” For this first annual conference, the theme is “The Disappearing Church of the Middle East.” Taking place in Silver Spring, Maryland, just outside the nation’s capital, the goal of the conference is to gather and mobilize church members and pastors from around the nation, and to be a bridge — connecting Western Christians with their persecuted brothers and sisters.

Every year I re-post this piece that I wrote in 2011. I do it as a tribute to the young servicemen that I met as a ten year old in New London, Connecticut, during the Vietnam War. I do it to honor the fallen and the lost, the ones who never found their way again when they came home, and the ones who endured the hostility and the alienation to live strong and good lives.

The Islamic State Can’t Stop Christ So They Destroy Those Who Reflect His Image They hate the Image reflected in the mirrors. But even they, with their knives and guns and bombs, and their crucifixions and abductions, and their rape and enslavement, and their marking of houses with threats, forcing thousands to flee, are powerless to stop Christ and His Kingdom.
